I know it's early, but to continue in last year's footsteps, this is an opportunity for you to post the technologies you are using (or presently plan on using) in your entry. I'll start. Name: Unknown, possibly Doug's Doodlings Genre: 2D Sidescroller with 3D models Languages: C# Libraries/Engines/SDKs: XNA for graphics, input and sound. Possibly Physics2D.Net for physics. Content Creation Software: GameSpace for 3D models Homebrew Technologies: Non-photorealistic renderer. Game Editor. Feel free to add categories as you see fit. Let's here them!

Name: Absolutely no idea.
Genre: Still no idea. I'm not sure if I'll even enter this particular contest but what I'm currently working on that may or may not end up being an entry in this contest is going to be 3D and either first or third person (3rd person like those Jedi Knight games). It won't strictly be a shooter but there will probably be some shooting involved.

Languages: C++ most likely, but this doesn't matter too much to me.
Libraries/Engines/SDKs: Most likely Irrlicht for model loading and possibly rendering, though I may switch to Ogre. If I decide that detailed physics are important I'll probably use ODE.
Content Creation Software: Wings3D, Art of Illusion, Gile[s], and probably others.
Homebrew Technologies: Nothing in particular except shaders and stuff.

I'm still not 100% sure I'll have the time to put together a full entry this year, but at the moment I sincerly hope I can enter something while I'm learning Flash. If so, here's my tech breakdown:

Name: Unknown. This will be the last thing I'll worry about.
Game: Also unknown. Almost certainly 2D.

Language/Platform: Flash Player 9, ActionScript 3.0
Content Creaton Software: Flash CS3, Illustrator CS3, Audacity, GarageBand (unless I upgrade to Logic Express)
Homebrew Technologies: Whatever I can throw up in terms of Flash programming between now and the end of the contest.

Language/Platform: C++, Windows, OpenGL with GLEW

Content Creaton Software: The GIMP, Audacity.

Name: Not sure if I'm even entering.
Genre: See above. If I do, it would likely be some sort of third-person shooter.

Languages: C, Lua
Libraries/Engines/SDKs: Unless I come with a reason otherwise, I'll be using my Quake 3-derived codebase, which is/will be rather full-featured.
Content Creation Software: My GTKRadiant-derived editor and whatever else is necessary...
Homebrew Technologies: Everything I've done to Quake 3 and then some.

Libraries/Engines/SDKs: Boost, Ogre, OIS, CEGUI

Name: Who picks names so early in the game?
Genre: 2D Sidescroller

Languages: Probably C++
Libraries: I dunno. I need to look for a 2D library

I dont know if I'll actually have time to participate but at least this contest has gotten me thinking about possible games. I thought of and partially fleshed out a design for 4e4 and I even started coding one for 4e5 so maybe I'll finish something for 4e6 [grin]
